Online PR News – 09-June-2011 – – Developing the necessary skills to function in life can be a difficult task for any child, but especially for a child with special needs. With the help of UCP of Central Florida, more than 150 children, many with special needs, will graduate on Friday, June 10 at 9:00 a.m. with the skills necessary to move into a kindergarten classroom.
“Each of these 150 graduates has made remarkable strides in their development” said Ilene Wilkins, President/CEO of UCP of Central Florida, an Orlando charter school. “Many of them came to UCP unable to walk, talk and/or feed themselves. Now, after hard work by everyone involved, each child has accomplished so much and has unlimited potential as they move to the next grade level.”
The graduation ceremony will be held at the Greater Trinity Baptist Fellowship Church on Friday, June 10 at 9:00 a.m. Greater Trinity Baptist Fellowship Church is located at 731 Fairlane Avenue, Orlando, FL 32809.

Following the presentation of diplomas, attendees will also participate in a special sing-along and celebration of the children followed by a reception with refreshments.
